Hello all, As you can see the backdrop that supposedly has the FM on it...Ive never seen it myself, is the part of the wall that is constructed using an old door, effectively sealing off the room from the rest of the house, and the stairs Elizabeth climbs. The only thing Ive ever seen on that door aside from blood and stains is the faded impression of the number 26. My word isn't enough I'm sure, so you can check with Sam Flynn who was also a part of that same discussion last year, which was wiped out with the crash along with everything else. All that shows us the "partition wall" was originally a wall with a doorway, and that doorway was likely sealed using an old door for 26 Dorset Street. I'm not sure where that would have come from, I believe the only Dorset facing door of the house was the shed's, maybe from the door inside the archway that Elizabeth uses. Best regards all.

The alleged 26 on the wall is no more real than the alleged FM on the wall. Both are just people squinting at marks on a wall and trying to form characters in their heads.

Well, you may be right - except inasmuch as the alleged "26" appears on what may have once been the central cross-panel of a door, and in roughly the right place for a premise number to have been affixed:

I did anticipate that Dan, ...so if you doubt its there, I do encourage you to ask Sam, whom I assume your opinion is in higher regard of.

No Baphomets...just simple numbers. And it does address some comments of the time that said that wall was made of "old doors".

Best regards.

Sam,

Thank you, I was using your name as my collateral, but its much better from the source.

My best Mr Flynn.

You've got to be joking, Mike. Dan's opinion of me must be lower than a snake's penis.

Sam,

"perrymason"'s trust in you is cute, but in this case it's unfounded.

The 2 in that supposed 26 is clearly not a two. The upright section is not a rounded or slanted midsection of a two but a severely vertical line... and, as can be clearly seen in the photo you posted, that line continues up the surface of the wall beyond the region you imagine to be a 26.

All throughout that photo here are little dark spaces of things that look like letters or other characters if you squint. In that image you posted something akin to a printed phone number can be seen across the bottom squared in section. Farther up the door, and as I posted to the boards a long time back, something like the word "faith" can be discerned coming out from the alleged cross on the wall (with the cross shape forming the largest portion of the small letter F). At best the particular photo being used had other papers sitting on it at some point and someone writing across it left impressions in the image. At worst the whole thing is just what imagine does for ambiguous data. Either way none of that was actually on the wall.

You're gonna love this, Dan - it wasn't even my idea in the first place! (Cue witty riposte )

For the record, I'm not too convinced about this "26" either. I'm certainly not concerned - whether it's there or not, it can have no bearing on the case, except inasmuch as if it is there, it shows that McCarthy or his predecessor were good at recycling!

Well, perrymason is certainly right that my opinion of you is much higher than my opinion him, anyway.

I respect a lot of people who have ideas I disagree with. Frankly I don't agree with anyone's opinions all of the time (not even my own), and with some of the people I most respect probably it wouldn't even be as high as 80% of the time. Merely disagreeing with you or objecting to some of your actions doesn't mean I don't respect you. You're clearly in the group of people who makes an effort to get more knowledge and tries to sort it out.

I am just wondering why it would not have been noticed by the investigators who actually went into the room.



Yours truly,
